Comfortable full-size form with earcups that fully enclose your ears. This model is loved for its increased sound isolation and the fact that it won't leak sound to your neighbors. It offers potential for maximum bass and loudness levels.

The highest frequency at which device produces audio. The higher the high-frequency response, the clearer and crispier the treble.
